“Postcard from Morocco” Presented by Marble City Opera

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Marble City Opera presents “Postcard from Morocco” by Dominick Argento 8 p.m. May 10-11 at Jackson Terminal.

Directed by James Marvel and conducted Peter Leonard, “Postcard from Morocco” (with libretto by John Donahue) is an opera that centers on seven travelers, waiting inside of a train station. Each of the unnamed travelers carries with them a piece of luggage that not only defines their character but also reveals something about their personality. By detailing what they carry in arias scattered throughout the show, each character anchors a vignette that both answers a question about their “reason d’etre” and causes the audience to ask questions of them.

Motivated by a quirky libretto and masterfully scored, the piece explores themes of control and the great lengths that people will go to protect what they hold dear.

Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for students.
